Treatment and recovery oriented systems of care
The Living Room Cardiff/Stafell Fyw Caerdydd is committed to the Recovery-oriented integrated system of care.

Whilst professional treatment can help people manage and even overcome serious substance use problems, the success of today’s treatment system is still limited. This is due in part to the fact that society uses an acute care model, whilst serious substance use problems are generally chronic in nature. As a result, whilst many people entering treatment may achieve a temporary psychosocial stabilization, they soon relapse after leaving treatment, in large part because of a lack of continuing support.

Whilst treatment can play an important role in recovery initiation, a chronic care model, similar to that used for other chronic conditions (e.g. diabetes, heart disease), is needed to help people with serious substance use problems find long-term recovery. Recovery-oriented integrated systems (ROIS), networks of formal (e.g. treatment) and informal (e.g. peer support) services in the community, are needed to support people meet changing needs as recovery unfolds.

One important aim of ROISs is to enhance the individual’s recovery capital, internal (e.g. mental health, self-esteem, resilience), and external resources (e.g. family support, peer support network) that a person can bring to bear on the initiation and maintenance of recovery.
